On September 15, 2008, Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy protection. Soon thereafter, markets around the world suffered major disruptions as global financial institutions suddenly became financially vulnerable and subprime debt exploded. In the ensuing 10 years, Eurozone debt became suspect, the concept of too-big-to-jail took hold, the megabanks continued their lawlessness, politics took unpredictable turns, and global financial regulation changed forever. This conference, which will feature special presentations from Barney Frank, Anton Valukas, Jeffrey Cohodes, and the Honorable Jed Rakoff, will take stock of legal and regulatory changes in 10 years since the failure of Lehman and assess whether the system has been made safe for investors and the public.

This program has been approved by the Illinois MCLE board for 7.75 hours of general credit.
